A sightless woman.
A man who has seen everything.
A new vision of the future.
For over four centuries the Air Elemental, Nodin Osi, has protected the very air we breathe. Yet when he returns to his ancestral homelands to recruit a beautiful ally, he’s literally set adrift when someone else takes control of his gifts.
Blind since birth, Kamali Kiwidinok can only see the vibrant auras surrounding each human. She blusters into Nodin’s world armed with her special vision only to discover that Nodin is the one person she can actually see.
Quint, an insidious creature composed of dark matter, returns with strong adversaries and stolen magic, holding nothing back in his pursuit of the most powerful witch in history. Unaware the Elementals have developed a spell to banish him from this plane, he relentlessly pursues his goals.
Plunged back into darkness, Kamali must stand against her enemies before helping the Elementals in their fight against Quint. Will Nodin make the ultimate sacrifice for Kamali? Or is the future between a human and a peri-mortal lost in the wind?
With vision there is hope. With hope there is love. – Nodin Osi

As an Empath, Kamali Kiwidinok could detect through colored auras a person’s physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual being. This gift was the only way she’d ever seen color. With her cousin Waya’s help, she’d had to learn what lay behind each hue. Her blindness had kept her world dark, yet when meeting new people, these vibrant glimpses gave her a clearer perception of their character.
She could actually see him.
Twenty-three years had passed without any true concept of the human form, so when he’d come to the diner and she’d finally seen…she’d had no words.
Kamali doubted people actually walked around with bright auras outlining their bodies, but his did. There he’d stood—a beautiful vision. Afraid to blink, to move, she’d taken in as much of his form as she could. Her entire body shivering with fear and joy—so much joy.
In that moment, everything in the diner had gone silent. Until Maize, her guide dog, growled, and then the air stirred with something.
A negative energy.
Suddenly, Nodin’s aura had changed from bluish-purple to orange before fading from her vision.
Darkness had once more descended before her eyes…and in her heart.
And in that moment, she’d decided she would see him again. She had to know if she would once more receive the gift of sight, even if she only saw him. Even if…
So she’d come to Colorado, because she never backed down from a challenge. And now, standing at this door with a deep brown aura blocking her vision of Nodin, she bit her lip to keep from crying. She’d done enough of that after he’d left, but then she’d received a visitor. One who’d taken her hand and explained where she was needed, if only she were brave enough.
Nodin has been the air Elemental for centuries. He has a new mission to find Kamali and bring her to the other Elementals so they can defeat their adversary, Quint. As soon as Nodin see Kamali he knows his life has changed and will never be the same.
When Quint reappears determined to defeat the Elementals and a powerful witch who helps them everyone will have to make choices about their future. Will Quint be defeated and will Nodin be able to protect Kamali?
This is the first part of the series I have read and I will be reading the rest. This is a refreshing concept that I found unique and interesting. I love the idea of the Elementals controlling the elements and protecting the world from evil forces. The bond between Nodin and Kamali is instant. It was great to see Nodin deal with his past and focus on his future. Kamali is a strong female lead and even though she is blind she is very independent. Nodin is the correct balance of protective and sensitive allowing Kamali the opportunity to be who she needs to be.
This is a fantastic plot that is well written and intriguing from the beginning. As well as the main characters there are some wonderful secondary characters and I loved Maya. I really enjoyed it and would eagerly recommend it.
